William S. Jenkins of the Drainage Committee made the 
following report : 

DRAINAGE REPORT. 

At a meeting held May 13th, 1892, a committee of five was 
appointed to inquire into the subject of public drainage, and 
report at the next annual Town Meeting. In accordance 
with said vote your Committee beg leave to report that they 
have attended to that duty by looking over the most thickly 
settled portion of the Town, and are unanimous in concluding 
that the time lias arrived when the Town should, without 
delay, secure a competent Surveyor's plan, specifications and 
estimate of such a system of sewerage as may be acceptable 
to the Town and State Board, of Health. The Committee 
have no desire to cite individual cases, to convince the citizens 
that a necessity exists demanding the better protection of the 
Town against disease, and would recommend that the Town 
proceed to carry a system of sewerage into effect. 

Wm. S. Jenkins, Joseph M. Bradley, 
Wm. B. Graves, Charles E. Abbott, 
John L. Smith, Committee. 

Voted, That the Report be accepted. 



13 

Took up Article 13th. 
John N. Cole of the Committee on Public Park called at- 
tention to the printed report here copied. 

THE PUBLIC PARK. 

The committee on the Public Park beg leave to report as 
follows : 

A public park in Andover may not be of such urgent need 
as are many other improvements, but it has seemed best to 
your committee to consider the future and not the present in 
preparing this report. On the east side of the " Old Rail- 
road, " between Andover and North Andover, the town owns 
a tract of woodland, familiarly known as "Carmel Woods, " 
whose rolling surface and handsome groves might be made 
into a beautiful park. 

This piece of land may be considered to be quite a distance 
from the centre, but there are several reasons why it comes 
into this report for consideration. The town owns it; its 
surface is broken by pretty knolls and glens, and attractive 
groves, walks and drives could be laid out within its borders 
with a small outlay each year. 

It is the judgment of your committee that a landscape 
gardner or some forester should be secured to lay out this 
piece of land on a plan, and year by year a small sum should 
be appropriated to cut a few trees, make a few walks, and all 
being in accord with a definite, well-defined plan, would in a 
few years give to our town an attractive pleasure ground with 
but little expenditure of money. 

The committee further recommends that the town careuflly 
consider the land known as the '• Richardson lot, " and its 
value to the town if acquired and improved. This piece of 
land is the best located of any plat in town for a local, cen- 
tral public play-ground. It is not large enough to be con- 
sidered as a public park, but its size easily admits of an ample 
and first-class play-ground, intersected by walks and dotted by 
bits of law T n, all making a delightful breathing place for old 
and young. Its near location to the school buildings owned 



14 

by the town, and the assured growth of the town should be 
considered. 

The question of draining the centre of town finds a partial 
solution in the lowering of Stony Brook : the control of the 
Richardson lot puts this brook into the hands of the town and 
its lowering would afford not only the proper drainage of this 
land, but many acres of land back of the Richardson property, 
desirable and attractive for building purposes, if properly 
drained. The filling in of low places in this land, if owned 
by the town, could be done as the town was able, and by use 
of refuse matter now used to fill in private land, need not be 
an expensive job. 

Wm. S. Jenkins, 
John L. Smith, 
Joseph M. Bradley, 
Charles L. Carter, 
John N. Cole, 

Committee. 
Voted, That the report be accepted. 

Took up Article 14th. 

Voted, That Fifteen Hundred Dollars be appropriated for 
making surveys, plans, and estimates for a complete system 
of sewerage, and the expenditure of this sum be left with the 
committee in existence, also that the matter of getting sur- 
veys, etc., of a public park, be left with the same committee 
and be paid for from the same appropriation. 

Voted, That a committee of three be appointed by the 
Moderator to apply to the Legislature for an act to authorize 
the Town to establish a sewer commissson. 

The Moderator appointed as that committee, Joseph M. 
Bradley, Charles E. Abbott and Charles Greene.

Voted, To accept the legacy of the late John Cornell, which

For the purpose of paying the principal of said bonds at their

REPORT OP THE SUPERINTENDENT OF STREETS. 

To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover : 

Gentlemen, — I herewith present my fourth annual report 
on Highways and Bridges. 

March 27th we began work on Central Street on the side- 
walk in front of T. A. Holt's store, and raised the walk up 
to grade as far as the Episcopal Church. This was built of 
broken stone and the surface covered with stone dust. The 
south side was also brought to grade from Chestnut Street to 
Campion's store. 

The next work done was on Locke Street. This was 
bronght to grade the entire length, five hundred and ninety 
feet. It required a fill from six inches to thirty. This 
street was macadamized the entire length and the north 
sidewalk was built of broken stones. Application was made 
to have the south sidewalk concreted : consequently this was 
built with gravel. The street cost eleven hundred and forty- 
six dollars and ninety-three cents, including sidewalks. It 
took eight hundred and seventy-five yards of filling, four 
hundred yards of broken stone, and one hundred and one 
yards of stone dust. This street and sidewalk was thor- 
oughly rolled with a four-horse roller. Grates were put in 
at each side over the brook. When this was finished the 
new Crusher had arrived. This was taken near Milton 
Jones's, and Salem Street was macadamized from Charles 
Blunt' s nearly to the house owned by Pearl Woodbridge. 
Five hundred and seventy-nine yards of stone were used here 
and two hnndred and thirty-seven yards of gravel. 

The next road macadamized was near Miss Sarah Jen- 
kins's. One hundred and ten yards were used here. The 
stones were furnished by Mr. Jones, and the gravel by Miss 
Jenkins. 

We next moved the crusher to the turnpike near Mark 



47 

Holt's, and began work June 12th. Here five hundred and 
thirty yards were used, and two hundred and twenty-four 
of covering. I might add here that both Salem Street and 
the turnpike were brought into shape with the road machine 
before putting on any stones. After this was finished we 
took the engine back to the Fed Springs, started up the old 
crusher, and began work below the Shawsheen River bridge 
(Main Street). Here we ploughed out the old roadbed and 
replaced it with broken stones as far as Mr. Millett's drive- 
way. Beyond the Dove place we gravelled over the road 
just beyond the Woods place, there removed the old road-bed 
as before, down past Mr. Poor's shop. The sidewalk was 
also brought to grade till we came to the trees set in the 
middle of the walk. Four hundred and ninety-seven yards 
of broken stones were used. 

A sidewalk was built from Woods' place past Poor's shop 
to Frye Village. 

We next put ninety yards of broken stone on Elm Street, 
near Jasper E-ea's, and seventeen yards of Telford road has 
been built near Plato Eames's. 

We next moved the crusher to West Andover, near C. I 
Hood's place. The crusher was set up on his premises near 
a pile of old lumber taken from the old Grant house. This 
was the most convenient place it has ever been my lot to set 
the crusher ; everything was there, water, wood, and stones. 
The crusher was here over a month, and all it cost the town 
for fuel was five dollars, — Mr. Hood giving all the fuel and 
nearly all the stones : he also gave me the use of two double 
teams for two days. Eight hundred and thirty-one yards of 
stones were used here, and three hundred and nine yards of 
gravel. Length of roads stoned at Hood's, one hundred and 
sixty-eight rods. 

We next moved to E. Gerry Hardy's. Here we broke five 
hundred and thirty-seven yards of stone, and used two hun- 
dred and eleven yards of covering. Length of road at Har- 
dy's, ope hundred and sixty-three rods, making a little over 
a mile at both places. This is all the stoned road for the 



48 

year ninety-three, excepting about twenty rods on the turn- 
pike below the Buxton place on Main Street. 

There have been over two miles of road gravelled in the 
following places : Salem Street near Mrs. Merrill's, Phillips 
Street, Main Street from the turn-out to Morton Street, Main 
from railroad bridge to Square, Elm from Square to Florence 
Street, a part of Maple Avenue, Elm near M. C. Andrews', 
and a portion of Highland Road. Several days' work was 
done between Lawrence line and Poor's shop. Twenty-three 
rods of road have been graded with chips near Albert Bailey's 
in West Andover from Jones's ledge. The road has been 
gravelled from Joseph Bourdelais's nearly to the Parker 
Winning place, and from the old Stickney place at Haggetts 
Pond, north past the house of the late Jedediah Burtt. 
Dane's hill has also been repaired, and the Lovejoy road, 
and, lastly, a portion of Ball Hill. More than twenty miles 
of road have been repaired with the road machine. Nearly 
all the bushes at the sides of the roads in town have been 
cut. The ledge on Elm Street sidewalk has been blasted out 
and a walk built. The east sidewalk on Main Street from 
Town House to Chapel Avenue and crossings have been con- 
creted, and edgestones have been set at all corners of streets 
between said house and Chapel Avenue, — the same paid for 
from the Ware fund. 

The following sidewalks and crossings have been concreted : 
Essex Street, south side, from Campion's store down across 
Brook Street ; curbstone corner set at Brook Street. Locke 
Street, south side, entire length, and edgestones at Main 
and School Street corners. Main from Locke, west side, 
to Morton Street; edgestones at each corner of Morton. 
Punchard Avenue from Main, north side, to Bartlett Street. 
Chestnut from Main, north side, to Punchard Avenue; edge- 
stones at side of Bartlett and Punchard Avenue. 

High Street gutters have been concreted near Harding 
Ltreet, and crossings from Valpey's to Campion's, also at 
Chestnut and Locke Streets, across Main Street. 

The elm tree at Mrs. Millet's has been removed, and two 



49 

trees on Main Street. Work has been done for the Boston & 
Maine Railroad Company, and also for C. I. Hood, and road' 
wash has been sold and the Treasurer has received the 
money for the same. 

MORTON STREET EXTENSION. 

Began work July 21st : built a culvert fifty feet long, four, 
feet wide, and five feet deep. 

November 20th, began work on the street ; worked six 
days and a half, when the cold weather set in and froze the 
ground so as to stop work : consequently the work is not fin- 
ished. 

Appropriation, March 6th, $1028 00 

Have paid out, — 
For land damage. 
Engineer, for relocating lines, 
For labor, 

For cover stone for culvert, 
Total expenditure, 

Balance unexpended, 

I think the above balance will be sufficient to finish the 

street, and recommend its re-appropriation.

Yours respectfully, 

JOSEPH T. LOVEJOY,

REPORT 



OF THE 



Selectmen and Assessors. 



SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL-HOUSES. 

The School Committee ask for the following appropriations : 
Schools, 119000 ; School-houses, 13000 ; Books and supplies, 
$1500. 

HIGHWAYS, BRIDGES, AND SIDEWALKS. 

The Superintendent of Streets gives a detailed statement 
of work in this deparement during the past year in his Re- 
port on pages 46-49. 

The interest in permanent roads, and as the Town is well 
equipped for building them, leads to the fact that it is policy 
to carry out the plans entered upon. 

The State provides an experinced engineer who can be con- 
sulted free of charge by town authorities at all times when 
necessary. We have taken advantage of this the past year. 
18000 could be expended to the advantage of the town for 
Highways and Bridges and $1000 for Sidewalks. 

REMOVING SNOW. 

From the fact that the town teams do a large share of this 
work, except after very heavy storms, we recommend $500. 

TOWN HORSES. 
These teams have been steadily employed and are a source 
of income to the town. They have performed most excellent 



69 



work, especially on snow, working early and late when it was 
necessary. 

The same appropriation as last year seems advisable, $3300. 

PAY OP TOWN OFFICERS. 
On the basis of the past year $5000 will be required. 

TOWN HOUSE, 

The principal expenses are janitor, heating and lighting. 
The income as seen by the Treasurer's account will reim- 
burse the town for a part of this appropriation of $1500. 

PIKE DEPARTMENT. 
The Engineers recommend $2500. 

INSURANCE, 

$300 will be required to renew the policies on town prop- 
erty during the current year. 

HAY SCALES. 

$50 is recommended. The income from the scales more 
than pays the outlay. 

PRINTING AND STATIONERY. 
$800 will be necessary. 

STREET LIGHTING. 

The contract for street lighting expires October 5th of this 
year. It will require $3514 to fulfill the contract, this is at 
the rate of $4600 per year. It will be necessary for the 
town to make some provision for light after October 5th. 

STATE AID AND MILITARY AID. 
The last appropriation for State Aid was $1600 and the 
expenditure nearly balanced. This amount will probably be 
sufficient for this year, and $300 for Military Aid. 



70 

All the State Aid and one half the Military Aid returns to 
the town treasury. 

MEMORIAL DAY. 

$200, the usual amount as for years past, is recommended 
and that it be expended under the direction of Post 99 G. A. R. 

SPRING GROVE CEMETERY. 
The committee in charge ask for 1200 and the receipts 
from the sale of lots and grass. 

STATE AND COUNTY TAXES. 

As we must meet the demands of the State and County 
we only estimate the amount $6000 each. 

DISCOUNT ON TAXES. 

If five per cent discount be allowed this year an appropria- 
tion of 13300 will probably be required. 

ABATEMENT AND REMISSION OP TAXES. 
$300 will be sufficient. 

INTEREST ON NOTES, BONDS, AND FUNDS. 

We are informed by the Treasurer that $10000 will be 
needed. 

WATERWORKS. 
The water commissioners ask for the following amounts : 
Bond payments, $5000 ; maintenance, $4800 ; sinking funds, 

$450. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 
This appropriation is needed to cover all expenditures not 
otherwise provided for. Unforseen contingencies are liable 
to arise, suits for damages, etc. We advise an allowance of 

$1500. 



71 



THE FINANCIAL YEAE. 

All accounts being closed in January, the February pay- 
day is the beginning of the new year so far as payments are 
concerned; in order to provide money therefor we advise that 
the annual vote, authorizing the Treasurer to hire money, 
be amended so far as to provide for this. 

The information in regard to the financial condition of the 
town is in the Treasurer's report. 



ARTHUR BLISS, >| Selectmen 

SAM'L H. BOUTWELL, } and 
JOHN S. STARK, j Assessors. 



72 



Overseers of the Poor. 



The resignation of Mr. M. H. Gould and Mrs. Allen 
necessitated the appointment of a new superintendent. 

We appointed Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Btirnliam to take charge 
of the Almshouse. They have had a long experience in a 
similar institution in North Andover. They came to us with 
the best of recommendations and have fully met our expecta- 
tions. 

The running expenses of the house will be about the 
same. 

We have complied with the requirements of the law in 
regard to Fire Escapes, which have been placed on each end 
of the building, at a cost of #240. 

$300 will probably be necessary for repairs. 

The cost of feeding tramps has been figured separately 
during the past year. Heretofore the expense of keeping 
the tramps has been reckoned in with that of the inmates of 
the almshouse. 

The hard times, with the usual steady increasing demand 
upon the town for help, has necessitated overdrawing the 
appropriation for relief out of the almshouse.

with hose-carriage for each, one two-horse hose-carriage, one 
hook and ladder truck, and one supply wagon. There are 
five thousand feet of hose in good condition.

I recommend an appropriation of $2500 for the running

the Board of Engineers authority to make such other changes 
as may be necessary to place the department in the best con- 
dition for efficiency and economy.

There has not been as much crime and drunkenness in 
town this year as formerly, owing to the fact that there was 
no license in Lawrence. 

Two cases for the illegal sale of liquor have been brought 
to court, and in both conviction resulted, fines being paid. 
I do not think a glass of liquor can be bought in this town 
at the present time.

Report of Cemetery Committee. 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, with the statement of the receipts and expenditures 
for the year ending January 1st, 1894. 

During the past year our honored townsman and super- 
intendent, Charles S. Parker, who has so faithfully attended 
for many years the burial of some of our citizens, passed 
away Oct. 9, 1893, necessitating the appointment of a new 
superintendent. The cemetery has been improved by finish- 
ing up avenues and walks with gravel and very much im- 
proved by cutting brush, grass, weeds, and removing accumu- 
lated rubbish, bringing to view the unsold lots on the im- 
proved sections of the grounds. Very many valuable monu- 
ments and headstones have been erected to mark the resting 
place of dear friends, and the committee strongly urge all per- 
sons to refrain from desecrating the grounds in any manner. 
It will be seen by the following report of the superintendent 
that a balance of 169.48 appropriated, is unexpended. Inas- 
much as the committee had decided to improve the grounds 
by planting selected species of trees and shrubbery, but were 
unavoidably delayed and consequently must be attended to 
the coming season, together with more particular care of the 
improved and more frequented portion of the cemetery, it 
will require an appropriation of $200, and the proceeds of the 
sales of lots for the coming year.

TWENTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 



Trustees of Memorial Hall 



The design of the founders of Memorial Hall was to fur- 
nish to the citizens of Andover an abundant supply of good 
reading, easy of access and free of cost. That this object 
has been measurably attained during the past year is shown, 
we believe, by the figures of the appended report : seven 
hundred new books besides the binding of fifty current peri- 
odicals, making a total of thirteen thousand volumes in the 
library, with an aggregate use, by borrowing or by consulta- 
tion, of nearly twenty thousand volumes. 

The By-Laws have been so amended as to provide a morn- 
ing hour for drawing books and changing the hour of closing 
in the afternoon, the hours for delivery of books now being 
from 9 to 10 a.m., 3 to 5.30 p.m., and 7 to 9 in the evening. 

Following the custom of public libraries in all other large 
towns of the State, an arrangement has been made by which 
the teachers of our public schools are given special privileges 
in drawing books of an educational character for use in con- 
nection with their classes. 

In accordance with a vote passed at the last annual town 
meeting, requesting the Trustees to provide for the delivery 
of books in the remote districts of the town, if they deemed 
it expedient, the expense to be paid out of the a dog-money," 
an arrangement has been provisionally adopted by which a 
regularly employed carrier delivers books in the four dis- 
tricts which seem most in need of such facilities, viz., the 



102 

Abbott, Bailey, North, and Osgood. The delivery is made 
once in two weeks at the houses of custodians appointed for 
the respective districts, who are supplied with catalogues, 
application blanks, etc. Books are drawn on " special deliv- 
ery cards," but under the same rules and limitations which 
apply to other patrons of the library. Owing to necessary 
delays in making the preliminary arrangements, the system 
has not been in operation sufficiently long to warrant a re- 
port as to its acceptability or its usefulness. The cost of 
equipment was about $30, and the current expense of deliv- 
ery about $50 the year. 

Among the more valuable additions to the library during 
the year are the Official Records of the Union and Confeder- 
ate Armies in the War of the Rebellion, eighty-six volumes, 
the International Cyclopedia, fifteen volumes, and the Cen- 
tury Dictionary, six volumes. For convenience of reference, 
the two works last named have been placed in a revolving 
case in the Reading Room. 

At the February meeting of the Trustees, a petition was 
presented by a committee of gentlemen representing the 
Gen. Wm. F. Bartlett Post, Grand Army of the Republic, 
asking that the use of the two upper stories of the Library 
building be granted them for the meetings of that Post, of 
the Women's Relief Corps, and of the Sons of Veterans. 
Careful deliberation upon the matter brought out the follow- 
ing points : 

It was the well-understood purpose and expectation of the 
honored citizen who was the principal founder of the Memo- 
rial Hall that, while it should serve as a memorial of the 
patriotic soldiers of Andover, iis practical use was to be that 
of a Library and Reading Room, and its construction was 
arranged in conformity to that purpose. The holding of the 
various meetings of the different Societies represented in the 
petition would certainly interfere for sixty or more evenings 
of the year with the necessary quiet of the Reading Room. 

The means by which the lower room is ventilated in all 
but the winter months would be lost by the required change 
in the' floor above. 



103 



The risk of fire and the rate of insurance against it would 
be materially increased. 

The cost of the necessary alterations in the building, in- 
cluding arrangements for heating and lighting the upper 
stories, would be large, involving an appropriation which it 
is impossible for the Trustees to make, and which it would 
be unjust to allow the Town or the Societies to make, consid- 
ering the limited time for which in any case the rooms would 
be available for the use of outside parties. For, most conclu- 
sive of all, 

The steady, natural growth of the Library will certainly 
need in a comparatively short time the use of the upper sto- 
ries for the storage of books and periodicals. Besides this, 
room must shortly be provided for the Cornell Historical 
Collections, — a gift which it is hoped may lead to similar 
donations by other citizens. 

For these reasons the Trustees, while expressing their most 
cordial sympathy with the objects and needs of the Societies 
named, and presuming that some more practical method of 
aiding them would be readily responded to by the commun- 
ity, decided by unanimous vote that they could not consist- 
ently grant their request.

Nineteen volumes, worn out and withdrawn, have been replaced 
with new ones. 

One volume has been lost, but replaced voluntarily by the loser ; 
one other is missing, and one book has been sent for by mes- 
senger. 

One number each of the Cosmopolitan, Cornhill Magazine, Boston 
Journal, Boston Post, Andover Townsman, and Lawrence 
American have been taken from the Reading-room, and not 
returned. 

The following magazines have been mutilated, requiring new cop- 
ies : Harper's Monthly, Review of Reviews, and St. Nicholas. 

The mutilation of magazines and papers is something no library 
can entirely guard against, and it is impossible to detect the 
perpetrator of the mischief. 

No other library allows such free access to its costly books of refer- 
ence, and the generous list of periodicals, and among the many 
visitors there are always a few maliciously inclined.

FIFTH 



ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 



WATER COMMISSIONERS 



FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDING 



January 10, 1894. 



Andover, Mass: 
THE ANDOVER PRESS, PRINTERS, 
1894 



REPORT. 



To the Citizens of Andover: — 

Your Board of Water Commissioners herewith submit their 
fifth annual report, exhibiting the result of the operations of 
your Water system for the year ending January 10, 1894 : 

Applications last report, 567 

Received during the year, 56 

Total to date 623 

Water takers Jan. 10, 1894, 828 

" Jan. 10, 1893, 751 



Increase for the year ., _ 77 

Receipts from Water Kates for 1893, $7647 95 

" " " " " 1892, 5977 41 



Increase , $1670 54 

There has been laid during the year 5,975 feet of street 
line, all 6-inch. 

The receipts from all the extensions made are sufficient to 
conform to the vote passed by the Town in March, 1892. 

The distributing system now consists of 23 1-2 miles of 
street line, 178 Hydrants, 6 Drinking Fountains, 2 Watering 
Troughs, 4 stand pipes for street sprinkling, 207 gates, and 
626 service pipes. 

The much needed building for a work-shop and for storage 
purposes has been erected on land belonging to the Town on 
Park Street. One room in this building is occupied by the 
Superintendent of Streets for storage of tools, etc., belonging 
to his department. 



A two-story dwelling for the engineer has also been erected 
on land belonging to the Town on the Pumping Station lot, 
and near that building. As the engineer is so near at all 
times we feel somewhat relieved in our fears from fire at the 
station, where, above all others of our public buildings, the 
loss would be most severely felt. 

We have also purchased a suitable team for moving small 
pipe, tools, etc., and for the general use of the Superintend- 
ent. 

In July one of the pump cylinders became injured and con- 
tinued to grow worse, and could not be repaired. We were, 
therefore, obliged to replace it with a new one, which was 
done in December. This is the most serious mishap since the 
works were started, and cost to replace it over five hundred 
dollars. 

It was found necessary to run the pump nearly every day 
during July and August, and such will probably be the case the 
coming summer, and in case of a dry season, with the in- 
creased demand for water, it will require extra running for a 
longer period. 

The amount appropriated last year for maintenance would 
not have been sufficient if there had been no extra expense, 
as we lack nearly $270 to pay bills already due, besides the 
cylinder and labor on that, which leaves a difficiency of near- 
ly $800 to date. We, therefore, recommend that you appro- 
priate 84,800 to pay past indebtedness and for maintaining 
the works the present year. 

There is but little prospect of any street pipe being required 
this year. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 



SUPERINTENDENT'S EEPOET. 



To the Board of Water Commissioners : 

I herewith present my report for the year ending January 
9, 1894. 

During the year there has been 5975 feet or 1 13-100 miles 
of 6-inch pipe laid, and 5 6 inch gates and 4 hydrants set. 
This work has been done by day labor and has shown quite a 
saving over the contract system heretofore in vogue. Pipe 
has been laid and gates and hydrants set as follows: 

Cuba Street, from dead end to J. Henderson's, 183 feet 
6-inch pipe. 

Lowell road, from Robert Lindsay's to E. Burtt's, 35* >1 
feet 6-inch pipe, 2 gates and 2 hydrants. 

Ridge and Railroad Streets, from Essex Street to the 
Electric Light Station, 2016 feet 6-inch pipe, 2 gates and 2 
hydrants. 

Porter Street, from Main Street to Margaret Nicholson's, 
215 feet of 6-inch pipe. 

Total length of main pipe in service January 9, 1894, 23 
1-2 miles. 

There have been received 06 applications for service pipes. 
One pipe has been laid on an application received in 1892, 
and two pipes laid to buildings owned by the Water Works, 
making 59 pipes laid during the year. The following sched- 
ule shows work in this department:

Agreeably to a vote of the town, a 3'' drain has been laid 
from the stone watering trough on Salem Street 722 feet to a 
small brook. Although a large amount of ledge was encount- 
ered, the expense was well within the appropriation made 
for that purpose. 

Contracts were made early in the year for the erection of 
a shop for repairs and storage ; also for a dwelling house for 
the engineer at the Pumping Station. Under these contracts 
have been built a two-story flat roof shop 50 feet by 25 feet 
and a two-story dwelling house of six rooms and bath, sup- 
plied with hot and cold water and heated by steam. The 
expense of the buildings is shown in the financial report, un- 
der the headings of 4 ' New Shop " and " Buildings at Pumping 
Station," respectively. There was a further expense of $85.15 
for grading around the house, shown under the heading of 



Grading Land.' 



Maintenance. 



There are now connected and using water 33 stores and 
offices, 9 dormitories, 6 stables, 5 greenhouses, 5 clubhouses, 
5 churches, 7 buildings for manufacturing purposes, 4 laun- 



18 REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 

dries, 2 hotels, 2 eating-houses, 3 schools, 2 depots, 1 library > 
1 hall, T athletic grounds, and 742 families, from which an 
income is received. 

The town is furnished without charge with water for the 
town house, town farm, Memorial Hall, town stables, 3 engine 
houses, 5 schoolhouses, 6 drinking fountains, 4 stand pipes 
for street sprinkling, and 178 hydrants. 

There have been repaired during the year 36 leaks ; name- 
ly, 1 split main pipe, 1 split service pipe, 1 hydrant valve, 7 
blown and 20 defective joints. 

July 21 one of the pump cylinders cracked and all efforts 
to repair it being unavailing, a new cylinder was put in Dec. 
20, 21. This was an extraordinary expense to maintenance, 
costing over $500. The appropriation for maintenance was 
not sufficient to meet increased expense caused by the neces- 
sity of running the pumps nearly every day during the sum- 
mer months, and there are outstanding bills amounting to 
nearly $300 on this account. About $800 will, therefore 
be required to meet unpaid bills of 1893, in addition to the 
regular appropriation for 1894. 

The pumping for the year increased beyond expectations, 
the consumption at times reaching a half million gallons a 
day. 

Annexed will be found the usual records of pumps, average 
daily consumption, etc. :

20 REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 

Owing to the large quantity of water being used or wasted, 
it was deemed advisable to institute a house to house inspec- 
tion. Although at the time of writing this inspection is not 
finished, enough lias developed to show the necessity of such 
a course. As is shown by the average daily consumption for 
the cold months, it is evident that in many places the water 
is left running to prevent freezing. This is one of the hard- 
est as well as most expensive leaks to detect, and it is to be 
hoped that night inspection will not be necessary. 

Perhaps the cheapest, certainly the fairest, way to supply 
consumers is by the meter system; metering every service. 
This is certainly the surest way to prevent waste, and while 
the income might not be increased by such a course, the run- 
ning expenses would be lessened. I do not at the present 
time wish to make any argument for such a course, but will 
present a few figures without comment. 
Total water pumped, 1893, 104,123,285 gallons, 

Income, $7647.95. 
Passed through 204 meters, 12,779,970 gallons. 

Income, $3526.55. 
400 taps and public use, 91,343,315 gallons. 

Income, 14121.40. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH. 

Andover Jan. 10, 1894.
